isolated and i should be quaranti quarantined. >> reporter: the cdc originally claimed vincent made a mistake flying. >> she should not have been on that plane. >> reporter: but abc news has learned vincent contacted them before boarding the flight and the cdc gave her the all clear even though her temperature was slightly elevated because she didn't meet the threshold. the admission fueling an already growing anger against the agency. this morning the hospital issuing a mea culpa in a letter to congress, saying they initially misdiagnosed duncan, made mistakes afterwards, and failed to provide accurate information. meanwhile, three schools in the dallas area are closed for cleaning. a precaution tied to students who were on that amber vincent flight. abc news, dallas. san francisco international airport is ready should any passenger arrive with ebola-like symptoms. the cdc has not ordered sfo to begin screening passengers for ebola, but it is prepared. county health workers and cdc

we have breaking news right now in oakland. you're looking at the scene of a freeway offramp shut down in oakland. according to the chp, that's the 51st street off-ramp from highway 24. this is because an eight-inch asbestos cement pipe ruptured. also, they may have a water main break. this is all happening near the children's hospital in oakland. east bay crews are working on making those repairs. the hospital is not affected, but two residences and two fire hydrants have water shut off. again, sky 7 hd hive over the scene in oakland. so just a few minutes ago, mike was saying that the national oceanic and atmospheric administration has a new forecast. we're not going to like it. >> that noaa. >> not the one that built the ark. >> we definitely don't knee an ark -- need an ark.
>> not enough rain this winter? >> i'll show you what's going on. we have to jump into it. let's start with our temperatures. we're going to be warmer than average. that's what they believe. they give us well above average chance of being warmer than average with below average all along the gulf coast and into the midsouth. they give us equal chances of being above, average, or below average as far as precipitation goes for december, january, and february. you can kind of see where the storm track is going to be. right along the southwest and into the gulf coast and up the east coast. looks like it's going to be pretty dry up along the northern states into the great lakes states because of the storm track being farther to the south. so there you go. hopefully they err on the side of underforecasting the precipitation. here's the way it looked from the golden gate bridge this morning. same thing from our high-definition san jose bureau camera. what we're looking at are just high clouds roaming in on this
fast jet stream. some blowoff from the showers out to our west that will work their way towards us tomorrow. but not all of us are going to get much in the way of rain. even if you get some, it will probably be very light. if you're heading out right now, 60 in oakland. everybody else pretty much in the mid to upper 60s. you can see a little haze out there. it is not a spare the air day. thankfully we haven't got into any of those yet. high clouds and cool today. our active pattern means a couple more chances of rain with those chances mainly staying north of us. our temperatures today, mid to upper 60s along the coast in san francisco. upper 60s to low 70s north bay through the bay. as you head to the south bay and inland east bay, you could have some mid-70s. tonight we'll be back in the 50s in just about all of neighborhoods. the coolest, napa and palo alto. you can see the storm system out to our west. the blowoff from the clouds. definitely the thicker and wider clouds are along the cold front.
partly sunny and cooler than average today. a chance of rain with this system tomorrow. here it comes. unfortunately as it rolls in, it's going to bring us a scattering of light rain across the north bay starting at noon tomorrow, through the afternoon hours and into the evening hours. sprinkles for the rest of us. notice the green. the future radar returns never really climb ashore because this system falls apart before it gets here. so by saturday evening, we're looking at a lot of sunshine before the sun sets and temperatures a little bit warmer. here's our tropical storm. it is still churning around just to the southwest -- or southeast, i should say, by about 490 miles. look what it does. it does intensify a we head towards friday evening. that's when the bulk of it's going to be hitting hawaii. but it's going to be going south. so hopefully they're protected just a little bit. as we head towards sunday morning, it's going to get oahu a little wet and windy then move
away. back here at home, the weekend will be brighter and warmer. monday and tuesday, another chance of light rain. by wednesday, we're out. >> all right. not the big stuff we're hoping for. thanks, mike. we have some places to explore where you live this weekend. >> now that the post-summer heat is subsiding, it's time to curl up at the movies. but the new film "men, women, and children" might make you recoil in your seat. it tells the story of how the internet has altered relationships, self-image, and communications. check out our interview with the producer and writer on our website. and we've crowned the largest pumpkin ever to grow in north america, weighing in at a whopping 2,058 pounds. this means it's time for the half moon bay arts festival. marvel at a haunted house, live
